THE MATCH-UP: The Marist football team (3-5 overall, 2-3 PFL) plays its fi rst home game in four weeks as the Red Foxes host Dayton (5-5, 4-3). Kickoff at Tenney Stadium is set for noon EST.

SENIOR DAY: Prior to the game, the program will hold its annual Senior Day ceremony, which will honor senior players, managers and athletic trainers.

SAN DIEGO GAME POSTPONED: Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, San Diego was unable to travel to New York for the scheduled game against the Red Foxes on Saturday, Nov. 3. The contest will be made up on Saturday, Dec. 1 at noon EST. It will be Marist's first game in program history that will be played in December.

SCOUTING DAYTON: The Flyers will play their season finale today. Dayton has won four of its last five, with all of its victories coming by at least two touchdowns. In its last outing, the Flyers handed Drake its first PFL loss this season by a score of 28-13.

A MARIST WIN TODAY WOULD ... :

- give the Red Foxes a win on Senior Day for the seventh time in the last eight years.

- give Marist its fi rst victory against Dayton in four tries.

HISTORY WITH DAYTON: This is the fourth all-time meeting between the teams, with the Flyers having won each of the first three contests. This will be the second meeting between the teams in Poughkeepsie. The first was a double-overtime contest won by Dayton 41-34 on Nov. 13, 2010. In that contest, QB Tommy Reilly set Marist's single-game records for completions (35), attempts (51) and passing yards (417), all of which still stand today.

RED REALLY MEANS STOP: Marist leads the PFL in Red Zone defense, as opponents have been held scoreless in 14 out of 30 trips inside Marist's 20-yard line. The 16 scores include just nine touchdowns and seven field goals. The 14 scoreless trips include seven turnovers, four loss on downs and three missed field goals.

AND IT'S THE BEST THERE IS: By allowing scores on just 53.3 percent of trips inside the Red Zone, Marist's Red Zone defense is tied for lowest rate of scores allowed with Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

TURNOVER TURNAROUND: After ranking 117th in the FCS in turnover ratio last year (minus-16), Marist leads the PFL and is seventh in the FCS at plus-8 this year. The Red Foxes have had four games without any turnovers this year, including their last three. They have also forced 14 turnovers in their last five games.

TWO AWAY FROM LAMACCHIA: Fifth-year senior WR Michael Rios has 14 career receiving touchdowns, and is just two away from tying James LaMacchia for the program record in that category. Rios has scored in each of Marist's last three games, and has scored all seven of his touchdowns this season in the Red Foxes' last five contests.

BIG-PLAY THREAT: Of the 14 receiving touchdowns WR Michael Rios has in his career, 12 have covered over 40 yards, nine have been from over 60 yards, and seven have been from over 70 yards. He enters today averaging 25.3 yards per catch in his career, and currently ranks third in program history with 1,693 career receiving yards, trailing only Guy Smith (2,019) and James LaMacchia (2,485). Additionally, Rios has blocked seven kicks in his career.

EFFICIENT PASSING: As a team, Marist ranks sixth in the FCS in passing efficiency at 160.06. Individually, junior QB Chuckie Looney ranks fourth in the FCS at 160.51.

JACQUES STEPS UP: Sophomore RB Max Jacques is second on the Red Foxes with 328 rushing yards this season, and 208 of them have come in the last two weeks. Jacques had 80 yards and two touchdowns at Drake on Oct. 20, and 124 yards with one score at Valparaiso on Oct. 27. The 124-yard game is the highest by a Red Fox this season.

REILLY APPROACHES RECORDS: Fifth-year senior QB Tommy Reilly saw his first extended action of the season at Drake on Oct. 20 with starter Chuckie Looney sidelined due to injury. Reilly enters today ranked second all-time behind James Luft in program history in attempts, completions, yards and touchdown passes. Reilly trails Luft by 38 attempts, 14 completions, 206 yards and one touchdown pass.

MARGINS: Even though Marist has a 3-5 record, the Red Foxes have outscored their opponents by 50 points this season. Marist's wins have been by 37, 25 and 13 points, and its losses have been by one, two, three, seven (in overtime) and 12 points.

TOUCHBACKS FOR MYERS: Senior Jason Myers has led the PFL in touchbacks each of the previous two seasons. Myers had 25 touchbacks in 2010 and 2011, and was named Honorable Mention All-PFL both years. Myers has registered 17 touchbacks in 37 kickoffs so far this season.

HAGEMANN MAKES STOPS: Senior LB Mike Hagemann leads the Red Foxes with 61 tackles this season, and is 12th in the PFL with 7.6 stops per game. His 13 tackles against Butler on Oct. 13 were the most by any Red Fox in a single game this season.

MARSTON SHINES: Junior CB Jack Marston leads the Red Foxes in pass break-ups (five) and solo tackles (30). He is also second on team in interceptions (two) and third in total tackles (46).

LONGEST PLAYS: Junior QB Chuckie Looney hit fifth-year senior WR Mike Rios for a 97-yard touchdown pass at Valparaiso on Oct. 27, which is the longest play from scrimmage in program history. In the same game, sophomore RB Max Jacques tied the longest run in school history with a 96-yard touchdown run.

ADLER EARNS ACCOLADES: Sophomore S Zach Adler was named PFL Defensive Player of the Week after a nine-tackle, two-interception performance at Drake on Oct. 27. Adler also earned a College Football Performance Award.

2 FOR 100: At Valparaiso on Oct. 27, the Red Foxes had two 100-yard rushers in sophomore RBs Max Jacques (128) and Wale Onakoya (110). It was the first time the Red Foxes had two 100-yard rushers in the same game since Bo Ehikioya (221) and Keith Mitchell (101) both went over 100 against Iona on Oct. 25, 2008. As a team, the Red Foxes gained 349 yards on the ground in the contest, their highest single-game total since running for 412 in the aforementioned tilt against Iona.

LOTS OF YARDS: Marist gained a season-high 661 total yards at Valparaiso on Oct. 27. It was the second time this season the Red Foxes topped 500 yards of offense in a game, as they rolled up 550 against Davidson on Sept. 22.

LOTS OF POINTS, TOO: In its 44-7 triumph at Valparaiso on Oct. 27, Marist topped 40 points in a game for the first time since a 42-14 triumph at Campbell on Oct. 30, 2010. The total of 44 points was the highest since the Red Foxes rolled up 51 points in their previous trip to Valparaiso on Oct. 9, 2010.
